Community members of Keyes expressed sorrow at the passing of a transient man who was seen throughout the area and whose body was found in an open field south of Nunes Road near Highway 99.
The Sheriff's Department and Keyes Fire Department was called to the scene of a homeless camp set up in a thicket of trees and brush between 8th and Ninth streets.
County deputy Coroner Tom Killian said that the death of the 56-year-old man didn't appear to involve foul play and that a toxicology report is pending.
The man's identity was confirmed through fingerprints but the coroner's facility would not release his name because they are having difficulty making contact with family members.
Facebook users who belong to the Keyes City News page believed that the man's first name was Toby.
The body was found in an apparent camp where clothing was draped over a grocery cart and a bicycle with cart.
